When and How to Take Zyloprim

Some general considerations include the following:
  • Zyloprim comes in tablet form. It is usually taken one or more times per day, depending on the dose.
  • It is usually best to take Zyloprim just after a meal, as this may decrease stomach upset.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Zyloprim will not continue to work if you stop taking it.

Dosing Information

The dose of Zyloprim that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The medical condition being treated
  • The severity of your condition
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Side Effects of Zyloprim

As with any medicine, side effects are possible. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Some of the common side effects include, but are not limited to:
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Gout attacks (especially at first)
  • Rashes.
